Cubs 37th Ormskirk
(St Anne's) Scout Group

The Cubs are the middle Section of our Scout Group

Cubs are young people aged 8 to 10 who:

- Master new skills and try new things
- Have fun and go on adventures
- Make friends
- Are curious about the world around them
- Help others and make a difference, in their own communities and beyond

They meet every week in a group called a Cub Pack to take part in lots of interesting and challenging activities - achieving anything they set their minds to, and having lots of fun along the way.

What do Cubs get up to?

Being a Cub is all about growing and learning in small but mighty ways. Here are some of the things they get up to:

Going on adventures

Race down a river. Tell stories by torchlight. Fall asleep beneath the stars. Alongside their Pack, they'll spend plenty of time in the great outdoors. Together, they might build a den in their local park, or create an edible raft out of sweets, or go on a moonlit hike through their hometown. And even though they might not be ready to climb Mount Everest just yet, they're guaranteed to have plenty of adventures on their own doorstop, because being a Cub is all about making the most of what they have, wherever and whoever they are.

Learning new skills

Cubs learn by doing, Some of the skills they develop will be practical, like knowing how to cook a delicious meal or give someone first aid. Others will allow them to become a master at their chosen hobby, or help them to succeed in whichever job they decide to do when they grow up. But the most important skills they'll learn at Cubs are the ones that will make them feel confident and happy in their own skin. We call these character skills, and they include things like integrity - which means being honest and doing what they think is right - and initiative - which means knowing how to take the lead on something without being asked. Whatever skills they learn, it's all about having the courage to try new things and learn from them.

Helping others

Cubs work as a team to help other people. Together, they'll learn about global issues and what we can all do to help solve them. They'll also make an impact in their own community, through activities such as campaigning to save their local library, collecting donations for a foodbank, or planting trees in a neighbouring park.
